One day seminar on the Water – Energy – Food nexus

Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM) one day seminar on the Water – Energy – Food nexus

Location: Crowne Plaza hotel, Caversham, Reading, United Kingdom
Date: Thursday 18 May 2017
Time: Start: 9:00 for 9:30 Close: 16:30

Water, energy and food are inextricably linked. To help to achieve water, energy and food security at local, national and global scales a nexus approach is required. This is an approach that integrates management and governance across these sectors. This one day seminar brings together a range of practitioners and researchers that are carrying out work within the Water – Energy – Food nexus. Talks will cover a range of topics including:

  • Innovative methods of trade off modelling in low income countries
  • How future water availability in the UK could affect power production
  • The ways in which management of catchments can affect water supply and treatment
  • How agent-based modelling of fish is relevant to the Water – Energy – Food nexus
  • How small scale innovations can be scaled up to reduce the use of water, energy and food and thus lower our carbon footprint

Delegate fees are as follows:
Full time employees: £80 including VAT
Students and retirees: £66 including VAT
Corporate sponsorship (two delegates and a stand): £210 including VAT

Coffee and tea together with a buffet lunch are included in the fee.
Both CIWEM members and non-CIWEM members are welcome to attend.

There are representatives (including our own Scott McGrane and Gloria Salmoral) of all the EPSRC WEF nexus projects speaking at this event.
